This is such a cool-looking set that will be really fun for older Disney fans and collectors to build and display. We like that there are moving parts so you can pretend to sail Mickey and Minnie just like in the movie. If you're a Disney fan and you want to build a piece of Disney history, then this is the LEGO set for you.
First I want to say this is only the 2nd review I have been compelled to write, for anything! This set is so true to the classic form from the classic film! What a brilliant way to celebrate Micky's 90th anniversay. The the monochrome coloring while basic, brings the set alive, along with the smokestacks and paddle wheels for playability Don't be fooled this set is very colorful indeed! I took my time with the buid with many breaks. Although not difficult, the build is more interesting than meet the eye as well! Its mechanical engineering keeps inerest high, and repitition low! Bravo to the designers! I scored an Ideas 24th error box so bravo to LEGO as well for proving we are all human, and can make mistakes! We all know LEGO quality is top of the line regardless of a silly typo, and the mistake was caught fast! Thank you LEGO for releasing an awesome collectors set for Disney, LEGO, Micky, and "Typo First Edition" fans. There is no mistake in LEGO's and Disney's Steamboat WIlly set at all! Thanks for yet another great release!
After building the model, I must say that I'm amazed, and I can only recommend it to every LEGO® fan, builder, and collector. It's a nice display piece, the kids can play with it, and the building experience is also amazing and hard enough for adult fans of LEGO®!
Would I buy it for £79.99? Well personally the set still doesn't really capture my own interests and there is not enough here for someone who loves new elements and pretty colours. I missed colours, so sadly I don't think the black-and-white colour scheme is for me but it is a fine looking set. Having said that, there are plenty of Disney fans out there and many more will appreciate the effort to improve upon the submission and make a very nice memento of a famous mouse and his cartoon history.
After the slight disappointment of 21316 The Flintstones being significantly inferior to the original Ideas submission, that's certainly not the case here. It's bigger and better in every way, and far more detailed and functional. Designer John Ho has done an admirable job of turning a lacklustre submission into a model that's appealing and desirable. It's a very decent model but something just does not look right to me and that of course is that it's devoid of colour. I get that it's based on a black-and-white cartoon so has to be, but I can't help wondering how much more attractive it would look had it been built with a normal palette of hues.
The finished model is bigger than you might expect, especially if you'd seen the microscale design of the original Ideas project. The turning paddles and moving smokestacks are good fun, and if you're a Disney fan then you'll appreciate how closely the model fits with the classic cartoon source material, and you're sure to want to display it.
If the LEGO Disney theme was aimed at AFOLs, this is what it would be. It is hard to imagine what more a Disney fan could want from a set based on Steamboat Willie, with the designers having taken the unorthodox step of making a model bigger than the original fan design. This set is a serious contender for the best of the year – high praise in a year that has started with The LEGO Movie 2 theme already firing on all cylinders.
The LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie (21317) is a very good set and I do appreciate the addition details that put in to enhance the original project submission. If LEGO released the set as what was proposed, it would've been the smallest set in the LEGO Ideas line with little to no playability and I'm happy that didn't happen.
